NPR Feature and Memorial Event

I want to point out two items that I have added to the In Memoriam page.

First, NPR has published a remembrance of Starr. It also serves to alert readers that Birders: The Central Park Effect, of which Starr is the featured subject, will be rebroadcast this Saturday, February 9th, at 6:00 AM EST on HBO. If you want to see footage of Starr birding and discussing her life, you should try to record this broadcast.

The film is also available through the usual sources online (e.g., Amazon, iTunes, Netflix) to download or as a DVD.

Second, Lenore Swenson, who birded with Starr for over 23 years, will be planning an appropriate memorial event for her. It will take place in Central Park sometime during spring migration, and will likely involve a birding walk. I will provide information on this site and through postings to eBirdsNYC and NYSBirds.
